Manhattan I Saw.

a faded glory.

I had a dream

it was full of gleam

wonderful fascination it was

but in a  quick toss

the reality dawned fast

opening up in a cast

the place that came often

now shows up in a soften

which was beyond imagination

has suffered a repercussion

appears tattered and worn-out

famished and spent out

the streets look chaotic and shoddy

shine through with a gaudy

walls all black and mossy

the entire Manhattan  bustles

with subdued  ripples

the vociferous talk around

now assumes a weak sound

gone are the days of domination

financial district has lost the rumination

the spell  spread  a few years back

been there for almost a century in track

slips into a meek disoriented  fade

a course none expected in the least

yet that be one of a fall in a heat

as Manhattan seems now in  tone

a commercial entity without bone

Oh! it was a shock to me all along

as my stay ends up with this sad song.
